The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) is pleased to announce that 
the Government of the People's Republic of China will host the WIPO Summit on 
Intellectual Property and the Knowledge Economy in Beijing, from April 24 to

At the opening ceremony in the Great Hall of the People, the Chinese leadership 
and the Director General of WIPO will welcome Heads of State, high-level 
government officials, international CEOs, senior judges and leading academics 
to the start of three days of discussion, reflection and comment on issues of 
great relevance for the future of intellectual property and its key role in 
stimulating innovation and creativity and in generating economic growth through 
business development and wealth creation.

The Summit and its accompanying Industry and Private Sector Forum - which will 
take place in parallel and joint sessions - will culminate in the celebration 
of World Intellectual Property Day on April 26.
